Winter Update

Winter Update

With a particularly cold winter upon us and lower stock levels we have seen many changes to the real estate market over the last year.

Overall the Melbourne market has slowed during the course of the year. With auction clearance rates hovering around the 60% mark as compared to approximately 75% for the same time last year.

Many factors are affecting these changes including tightening of bank lending and some international buyers leaving the market. ???

What we are finding now is that great results can still be achieved but it is critically important to obtain the correct advice on the local market trends, presentation, and most importantly how to set the price correctly to attract the most potential buyers and the best offers. There is a lot to consider in determining how to set the price to achieve this. That is where it can make a significant difference to have an Advocate on your side. Someone who can provide unbiased and independent advice on the whole selling process.

It’s now nearly 6 months since Selling Homes Melbourne launched. To date we have achieved some amazing results for our clients with some Vendors selling up to $100,00 above expectations. We currently have 12 properties listed for sale with many more to come.

So please contact us first if you, a family member, or a friend could benefit from our service. Remember there is no additional fee for our service. What do you have to lose!!

Kind Words From Happy Sellers

Graham Caulfield was hired by me as a Vendors Advocate to assist me with the sale of my house and the purchase of a new apartment. From day one he provided me with advice about all aspects of selling and buying along with all the pitfalls involved and basically took the pressure off  He interviewed 3 Agents and in conjunction with me selected the one most suitable for my circumstances along with liaising with solicitors etc. Based on his long experience in real estate suggested a realistic price for my house. Graham was at the auction and gave great advice on the day. My house was sold at the price he originally estimated.. Graham also provided assistance with the selection and price of my new apartment which I have now moved into. Overall his service was very professional and friendly.


We have reached the end of the process in regards to the sale of my late fathers property.
I would like to express my sincere thanks for your involvement in the sale and the successful outcome we achieved.

There were a number of difficult situations develop leading up to the auction day; however you dealt with these in a very professional and calm manner which allowed the sale process to remain on track.

Thanks again and i look forward to the next project.


Thank you – (not necessarily) for selling the house BUT more so for how helpful, kind and generous you have been towards helping us through this time & process.  You have truly gone above & beyond and that’s what we will remember.

Michael offers great customer service.  He has always been there to give his expert advice whenever it has been needed, which has given us great peace of mind, both in the sale and purchase of our homes.  It was always comforting to know that instead of having to put all of our trust in a real estate, of whom we personally have not had good experiences with in the past, we knew that we had someone there who had our best interest at heart.  He would always go the extra mile to assist whenever it was required and we would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
